Retirement of Employes Probable Senator Cummins'
Bill to Reach Senate From Pigeonhole Majority
Favor Reporting Such Measure.
The first Important legislative step to
ward the establishment of it pension and
retirement system for tho clerks aim
employes In tho civil servleo Is likely
to be 'taken In a short time by the Sen
ate Committee on Civil Service.
Following a meeting1 of that- commit
tee, last night, It was given out by
Senator Cummins, eliulrman, that tho
bill, which he has Inttoducpd will prob
ably be reported to thq Senate at an
early date, with a favorable recom
mendation. Senator Cummins believes that such a
report will bo forthcoming next week.
At tho meeting of the c.nmlttee, last
night, the sentiment of a maJoVIty of
the commltteo was apparently In favor
of tho bill.
The mestlng last night was the sccpnd
one tho committee has held to consider
the Cummins measure. At tho first
meeting, about a week ago, the bill de-
eloped considerable strength In com
mittee. Last night It developed more.
And while no formal voto has been
taken to leport It, Senator Cummins,
who has been working for months on
tho question of a jetlroment system, ex
presses himself as much encouraged.
Cummins Is Encouraged.
If tho committee dpes make a favor
able report and the bill comes before
the Senate for discussion of Hr merits,
it will be a long and momentous step
In the direction of establishment of a
pension and retirement system. It
will mean, nmong other things, that
Senators who are In favor of doing
something to relieve the conditions, here
caused by the presence of many aged
clerks and employes In the classified ser
